North Avoca, NSW
Famous Author to sell North Avoca house
Mr Dickson recalls how his grandparents bought a block of land on Ocean Street in the late 1950s.
“I grew up on Ocean Street, watching it as it grew from a collection of shacks into a bustling, affluent satellite suburb of Sydney. In early 1970, my parents bought the fibro shack next to my grandparents’ home, and after a couple of years, they decided to expand. Instead of knocking the little shack down, they sold it to a guy who put the whole shack on a truck and moved it around the corner to Elgata Avenue, where it stood for many years until it finally got demolished to make way for a bigger, more solid home.
I remember that back then, you could hire a lady to bring her three large white goats to graze on your land. That was the least backbreaking way to clear a lot or maintain a lawn. I remember that the cinema was the only entertainment, and that the annual opening of the Bulbararing Lagoon was the pinnacle of school holiday excitement for all the kids.
Growing up in North Avoca was an incredible gift. There was never boredom with that beach and the rocks to explore endlessly, even into the winter.”
